2018 Point-in-Time

Results from the 2018 Point-in-Time survey were released at Thursdays' Community Breakfast.  It was great to see so many who made time in their schedules to be there and to be up to date on some of the homelessness statistics for Macon County. 
 
Each January, the Macon County Continuum of Care conducts a 24-hour survey to seek the most up to date numbers on homelessness in Macon County.  The results of that survey  for 2018, were released at the 2018 Community Breakfast on March 22, 2018. 


Please check our website for the complete results:  www.doveinc.org
(And for the past 11 years reports.)
 
But a few highlights shared at that breakfast not showing up on the report:
  • people from various agencies are already working to reach out to those who are homeless with an individualized effort of help
  • never give up, you don't know which time someone is approached by a caring concerned staff that the person will be ready for a different path for themselves
  • a group effort is needed and from the many there at the breakfast, that is what is happening
  • and thanks to many local media for sharing the story to so many across central Illinois

“have you talked to a trained domestic violence advocate?"

Have you ever had a victim of domestic violence try and open-up to you about their abuse and you not know what to say or how to handle it?...
